TR Member Perks!

It’s been a month since the season finale for Life is Strange released, and now fans of the paranormal adventure game cult hit can look forward to a physical limited edition to add to their collection. The box will feature several Arcadia Bay flavored goodies like a 32-page art book (that looks like Max’s notebook from the game) with previously unreleased concept art, two discs with the licensed soundtracks and the original score composed by Jonathan Morali, and developer commentary. This version of the game will also ship with newly added subtitle support for German, Italian, Castilian, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese speakers.

Life Is Strange Limited Edition


Life is Strange producer Luc Baghadoust had this to say in the official announcement:

The response to Life is Strange really has blown us away! To be able to share that experience with our fans in a traditional boxed format is something we’re really excited about and the decision to include the extra items for the Limited Edition is a direct response to fan requests.

The limited edition will be available for Xbox One, PC and Playstation 4, and will include the entire first season. You can pre-order your copy today or you can wait until the release date on January 22, 2016.

Quick Take

As some of you may know, I was (and still am) really enamored by the game’s atmosphere and gorgeous aesthetic. I was so impressed that I gave it one of the highest scores I could give it, and it has now taken its place in my top 10 favorite games of all time. I’m not usually one for limited editions, but I’ll make an exception this time, since the special edition includes a copy of the absolutely stunning original score that made the game feel that much more special to me. I hope they do a second season.

I’ve been playing games since I was just barely able to walk, and I never really stopped playing them. When I’m not fulfilling my duties as senior staff writer and tech reviewer, I’m either working on music, producing one of two podcasts or doing freelance work.

    There are people who genuinly like this game.

    I have no idea why, the voice acting is stiff, the graphics could use a HD make-over, and the dialogues are horribly written. Also, no option to tell the main character to grow a spine. It is a hipster simulator with adventure elements.

    If you are looking for game with a Steven King(Twin Peaks style narrative, I wholeheartly recommend Alan Wake as superior alternative.

    One day all these male videogame bloggers will be talking about games about MALE gay characters not just female gays.

    That’s right. I’m calling out male bloggers who fetishise lesbian relationships.

    You know who you are.

  • BurntToShreds

    I’ve noticed that a large portion of media about same-sex relationships seems to default to lesbians as the preferred pairing. Is it because it’s safer than a relationship between two men?

  • Dindu Nuffin

    The majority of game reviewers are men, that’s why the “mono-gendered” Asari in Mass Effect were all quite clearly visibly female.

    For all their bluster about being “progressive” not one of them have called for an increase in male homosexual characters.

    It’s the reason why straight men watch lesbian porn but not gay male porn.

    It has NOTHING to do with progressivism.

  • Chris Anderson

    Yeah that’s great and all, but what does this have to do with a limited edition of a game?

  • Chris Anderson

    I am one of those people. 🙂

    That being said, Alan Wake is a fantastic game from start to finish. I play that game every other year and I still am blown away by how well it holds up. Comparing LiS and AW is a bit far-fetched because, even though they both deal with supernatural stuff, the game’s narrative isn’t at all similar.
